Winter weather advisory issued; snow giving way to mixed precipitation

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for a large portion of Wisconsin, including Kenosha County (in fact the parts of the state to the north and west of us that are not under the advisory are under winter storm watches and warnings).

The advisory will be in effect from 9 a.m., Tuesday to 6 a.m., Wednesday.

Tuesday we are expected to see snow and freezing rain, becoming all snow after 4 p.m. New ice accumulation of less than a 0.1 of an inch and new snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches are possible. Tuesday’s high temperature will be 33. Tuesday night could see new ice accumulation of less than a 0.1 of an inch and new snow accumulation of around an inch possible. A 30 percent chance of snow and freezing rain lingers into Wednesday morning.

Difficult travel conditions are a prime concern during a winter weather advisory period. Says NWS:

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Expect slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
